Any news?
Hopefully there will be this new Law to stop dog/cat theft. It should be a minimum of FIVE YEARS not a MINIMUM , and they should serve the five years. Rant over. Hope Ted will be reunited very soon. All xd

Ted appeared in an East Yorkshire paper in July 2022 and I will be including on my web Last edited: 2022-07-10 12:58:06 by Lesley (ID84584)
Dog sighted roaming around Cresswell Beach sand dunes. I believe this is Northumberland. No further details as dog still roaming free. Please check out details and photo on FB page of Missing and Found Dogs North East UK. Look for post put on there by James Harrington not on his own FB page.
Lets keep making Ted "TOO HOT TO HANDLE! Keep sharing. Consider posting a STOLEN DOG ad in a National newspaper. Ted need to be made to be back with his owner. The vile person who stole Ted probably sold him on. Someone somewhere know where Ted is. To the low life who tool the dog remember Karma. All xd.

Fluffbug ...I cant see the Blog for Dogs on my mobile phone but can easily on my laptop Here is the link to the article, If you copy it into your browser it should open.

Is there any news at all about Ted? Anything, even something trivial. I can't bear it that he seems to have vanished and I am so upset for his owner and poor Ted, this is so devastating and despicable. You would have thought someone would have crawled out of their hole for the reward money. Perhaps they are laying low because of the publicity and will venture out when they think that we have all gone away. We are not going away and we will be looking forever!
HanL24 any possibility this could be him?
Praying for Ted’s return to his owner. X❤️X
I'd better not put in print what I would like to see done to these lowlifes.

I'd like to make a donation to your reward fund -- I'm sure if you set up a funding/donation page on one of the appropriate sites, and put the details here on Doglost, & on social media, you will get lots of help towards the reward fund -- there will be people out there who know the perpetrators and may dob them in for the reward. Never give up hope that you'll get Ted back.

From FB "It’s been 26 long and tearful days since we last saw Ted, since we last got to have a cuddle, since we last saw his wagging tail and happy face.
I plead with anyone who has him or knows those that do, please let him go in a safe place or claim the reward. We are heartbroken without him and will not stop till he’s home.
☎️Call 07931737047 or 07534958332 and all info will be treated with the strictest confidence. Xx"
Urgent Twitterstorm for TED

Sunday 10th Jan between 8pm-9pm

Unfortunately no news or information as to the whereabouts of Ted. Had a few possible sightings but unconfirmed if it was definitely him.

We are sharing his face far and wide hoping for some information.

Have a dedicated Facebook group set up should anyone wish to join
We're all praying for you Ted 🐾💓
I cannot imagine how Ted’s owners must be feeling after receiving Ted’s collar, that must of been absolutely heartbreaking & adding more pain to what they all must be suffering. I am hoping & praying for this dear boy to be found safe & sound & returned to his family. I am sharing on Twitter as much as I possibly can & word about him missing is spreading far & wide all over social media.
We are trying so hard to find you Ted xx
DogLostKaren - Area Co-ordinator London, Home Counties & Police Liaison
From Ted’s group; his collar was returned to owner last night. It would be great if full details, when, where, by what means, could be sent into so that we can liaise with our police contacts to see if they can help/advise Emma please

I’ll call you today as discussed before, thank you
Please could the owners update doglost with any news or developments

Updated Ted's post on National Group xx
What a traumatic experience for all concerned. I hope the gentleman is ok. Fingers crossed these scumbags are caught and punished appropriately (hung drawn and quartered preferably), and that beautiful Ted is returned to his owner. What kind of human race are we becoming??xxx
